ASIP 2019 Training – Automated 3D Crack Beta Curve Development via Smart Sim Apps
Abstract: This short training course will discuss the creation of Sim Apps for the automatic generation of complex, solution-verified 2D and 3D beta factors via the integration of StressCheck’s parametric FEA engine, the Windows Component Object Model (COM) and Microsoft Excel VBA.
- The Sim App demo video can be viewed here.
- The 2D beta curve Sim App example can be downloaded here.
- The 3D beta curve Sim App example can be downloaded here.
Originally presented as a training course at the 2019 ASIP conference in San Antonio, TX.

“Accurate and reliable stresses and Stress Intensity Factors are required for determination of static and residual strength and for crack growth analyses in analysis tools such as AFGROW. For some geometries, industry solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. The geometry, applied forces, and crack shapes and dimensions must be modeled reasonably well to obtain useful engineering data. The p-version finite element software StressCheck® (ESRD, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is used to demonstrate how accurate finite element solutions can lead to good quality engineering analysis.”
